Cedarlane Garden Lasagna ($4.75) nearly topped the list Healthiest Supermarket Foods complied by Women's Health. Since this lasagna came so highly recommended, I had to give it a try since it's made with organic ingredients, is low fat, and contains no trans fat.
That stats are good, but want to know how it tastes? Then
When I first opened the package, the meal reminded me of Amy's Vegetable Lasagna, but the positive comparison really ends there. The Cedarlane Lasagna didn't contain as much cheese, and the cheese is not your typical ricotta but nonfat cottage cheese. That must be why it contains much less fat. Unfortunately, it also contains less flavor. The tomato sauce was zesty and sweet but even though this lasagna supposedly contains zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, bell pepper, all I could taste were the big pieces of chewy spinach. If you're a fan of cooked spinach, you might like this Cedarlane lasagna. I definitely appreciate that it's low in calories, fat, cholesterol, and sodium, but my taste buds say to stick with Amy's Vegetable lasagna.
